    No surprise here, to be really safe against banking trojans that are already active on the system, you need a so called safe browser, like the ones from Kaspersky, Avast and Bitdefender.

    I see Zemama Anti-Logger tested but no Spyshelter, too bad, would be interesting to see how they would do. I assume very well.

    It would have probably failed the Simulator Test, but it would indeed be interesting to see if they could pass the In-the-Wild Real Financial Malware Test. I wonder if you have to pay to be included? You would think that MRG has the right to test any solution they want.

    AVLab in Poland tested SpyShelter in its online banking protection test: https://avlab.pl/PDF_avlab/AVLab-Test-of-software-for-online-banking-protection.pdf. It was one out of few that passed all the tests.

    Thanks, nice to see InterceptX/HMP.A tested for once.

    The thing is, it seems like they were using simulators, I'd rather see a test where banking trojans and RATS are already active on the system. The question is if SS can then still block them from RAM scraping, DLL injection and MITM attacks. So I don't completely buy into this report.
